Big Books from the Library’s Oversized Collection

This Library exhibit showcases books from the Library’s Oversized Collection. The Collection contains approximately 8,000 books that measure over 28 cm (11 in.). It is tucked away in the southeast corner of the Library’s second floor and is often overlooked. Feel free to borrow one (or more) of the big books displayed next to the exhibit.
